in recent foreign policy history is on tv defending david petraeus without actually addressing the real problems with david petraeus' record. those are the fact that he manipulated the white house into escalating afghanistan, he ran a campaign in iraq that was brutally savage, included arming, the worst of the worst. shiite death squads, sunni militiamen and go back to the training training that also had problems. to me, the questions of honor and integrity, i was raising those earlier. a number of other journalists covering petraeus were raising those concerns. you might not get that from someone at barbara starr at cnn who is essentially a spokesperson for the pentagon in many ways. so i think i just want to step back and have my piece because even the way the scandal is being covered is so different than how usual sex scandals are being covered where they hammer the guy. now everyone is saying oh, my god, he just went to the cia, how could he be, you know, he was susceptible to being seduced by this woman. give me a break. he has all his allies coming out to defend him where paula br

. is this shaping the president's foreign policy, without him directing it? are there real effects to all of this, do you think, worldwide? >> at this point, no, i don't think that. and one of the reasons is that the foreign policy really, a lot of it comes directly from the white house. there is a lot of control by this administration over what the direction is. after all, the president is one who is in charge and secretary clinton certainly has been very much a part of creating some of that, and carrying it out. but i think you have to say that at this point to say that when she leaves or somebody else comes in that the policy changes -- no, don't think that will happen. >> all right, jill dougherty, coming to us from washington. thank you, appreciate it, jill. >>> happening right now, we're getting word the two snowboarders stranded on mount rainier in washington have been rescued. we're getting in live pictures. find out exactly what happened and how they were rescued. stay with us coming up. ♪... ♪... choose the perfect hotel how they'll live tomorrow. for more than 116 years, ameriprise
. and as a result, i think what's lacking in our foreign policy and our policy in general is we have an american exceptionalism. we consider ourselves, as obama recently said again, the indispensable nation. as long as we have that attitude, we do not have the ability, the empathy or the compassion to see the world as a globe of which we are a partner. we are operating on the edge of a very dangerous precipice where we continue to contain and to find enemies and find a reason to bloeat our military budgets. >> other nations also feel that way about their country, that they're exceptional and indispensable. >> that's not true. no country i've ever been to has ever felt they were the indispensable nation to the world and could dictate to others what they could do. >> china? >> no. they have one foreign base. we have 800-plus bases. china has no history of aggression. the united states does. we deal with this in the book. >> i want to talk to you about david petraeus. yo you're a former military man. do you believe he should have resigned? i'm curious about your thoughts about him. >> he's part of

reality. now second, there has, in fact, been a significant shift in foreign policy appetite and national security appetite, both on the part of the two parties, and on the part of the american public. and what do we mean when i say that? there is no appetite for another land war in asia, and there's no appetite for a continuing to lead were in asia that we've still got in afghanistan. and we just saw in the concluded presidential campaign that the candidate who had a wing of his party clergy pledging them to take the view that we should be in afghanistan longer, that we should do more in syria, that we should do something militarily and iran was continually pushed away from that by the more political politically minded wing of his party that was reading an internal polling which said, there's not much difference particularly on afghanistan it when republicans and democrats. so you don't have the demand side, if you will for the kind of military spending that we've seen over the last decade. you know longer have a public outcry for military spending on this scale as a response to terroris
